Levante vs Real Madrid

New, comments

Real Madrid kick off in about half an hour at the Ciutat de València.

The line-ups are out and Carlo Ancelotti has changed things slightly since midweek.

Real Madrid's starting XI: Diego; Arbeloa-Varane-Ramos-Coentrão; Khedira-Modric; Di María-Isco-Cristiano; Benzema

Real Madrid's bench: Casillas, Marcelo, Pepe, Carvajal, Illarra, Jesé and Morata

Levante's starting XI: Keylor Navas; Pedro López, David Navarro, Héctor Rodas, Juanfran; Simao Mate, Diop; Xumetra, Ivanschitz, Rubén García; Babá

Levante's bench: Javi Jiménez; Nikos Karabelas, Vyntra, Sergio Pinto, El Adoua, El Zhar y Barral

There was speculation Morata might start, but Karim Benzema gets another chance leading the attack ahead of Isco, who is back in the line-up. Marcelo, so brilliant mid-week, is being rested after his return from injury as Coentrão steps in.

In their last 4 trips to Valencia and to this stadium, Los Blancos have won only once in this stadium, but a win is necessary today having fallen 5 points behind the leaders.

A reminder, keep the chat calm and respectful!

Hala Madrid!
